SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
NOTE 1. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
New Accounting Pronouncements
 
On June 30, 2010, the Company adopted a new accounting standard that requires additional disclosures about the major categories of plan assets and concentrations of risk for an employer's plan assets of a defined benefit pension and other postretirement plan, as well as disclosure of fair value levels, similar to the disclosure requirements of the fair value measurements accounting standard (See Note 20). As this guidance only requires enhanced disclosures, which the Company has provided, its adoption did not have a material impact on the consolidated financial statements.
 
On July 1, 2009, the Company adopted a new accounting standard that provides that unvested share-based payment awards that contain nonforfeitable rights to dividends or dividend equivalents, whether paid or unpaid, are participating securities that must be included in the computation of earnings per share pursuant to the two-class method. These payment awards were previously not considered participating securities. Accordingly, the Company's unvested performance units, restricted stock awards and restricted stock units that provide such nonforfeitable rights are now considered participating securities in the calculation of net earnings per share (EPS). The Company's share-based payment awards granted in fiscal year 2010 are not participating securities. The new standard requires the retrospective adjustment of the Company's earnings per share data. The impact of the retrospective adoption of the new accounting standard on the fiscal year 2009 and 2008 reported EPS data was as follows:
 
Basic Diluted
As previously As previously
      reported       As restated       reported       As restated
Year ended June 30, 2009   $        3.86   $        3.82   $        3.81   $        3.79
Year ended June 30, 2008 3.30 3.27 3.24 3.23

The calculation of EPS under the new accounting standard is disclosed in Note 15.
 
On July 1, 2009, the Company adopted a new accounting standard that establishes principles and requirements for how the acquirer of a business recognizes and measures in its financial statements the identifiable assets acquired, the liabilities assumed, including contingent liabilities, and any noncontrolling interest in an acquired business. The new accounting standard also provides for recognizing and measuring the goodwill acquired in a business combination and requires disclosure of information to enable users of the financial statements to evaluate the nature and financial effects of the business combination. The provisions of this standard were applied during the Company's most recent acquisition (See Note 2).
 
On July 1, 2009, the Company adopted a new accounting standard that requires disclosures about fair value of financial instruments in interim financial information. The Company already complies with the provisions of this accounting standard for its annual reporting.
 
On July 1, 2009, the Company adopted the provisions of the accounting standard on fair value measurements that apply to nonfinancial assets and liabilities that are recognized or disclosed at fair value on a non-recurring basis. The adoption of these provisions did not have an impact on the consolidated financial statements or disclosures.
 
On July 1, 2009, the Company adopted a new accounting standard that establishes new accounting and reporting standards for the noncontrolling interest in a subsidiary (commonly referred to as minority interest) and for the deconsolidation of a subsidiary. The new standard establishes accounting and reporting standards that require the noncontrolling interest to be reported as a component of equity. Changes in a parent's ownership interest while the parent retains its controlling interest are accounted for as equity transactions and any retained noncontrolling equity investment upon the deconsolidation of a subsidiary are initially measured at fair value. The adoption of the new standard did not have an impact to the consolidated financial statements.
On June 30, 2009, the Company adopted a new accounting standard that establishes principles and requirements for subsequent events. The statement details the period after the balance sheet date during which the Company should evaluate events or transactions that may occur for potential recognition or disclosure in the financial statements, the circumstances under which the Company should recognize events or transactions occurring after the balance sheet date in its financial statements and the required disclosures for such events. The adoption of the new standard did not have an impact on the consolidated financial statements.
 
On January 1, 2009, the Company adopted a new accounting standard that requires disclosures of how and why a company uses derivative instruments, how derivative instruments and related hedged items are accounted for and how derivative instruments and related hedged items affect a company's financial position, financial performance and cash flows (See Note 11). As this guidance only requires enhanced disclosures, which the Company has provided, its adoption did not have a material impact on the consolidated financial statements.
 
On July 1, 2008, the Company adopted the required portions of a new accounting standard on fair value measurements, and its adoption did not have a material impact to the consolidated financial statements (See Note 11). This standard defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in accordance with U.S. GAAP and expands disclosures about fair value measurements.
 
In February 2007, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued a new accounting standard that permits entities to choose to measure many financial instruments and certain other items at fair value. This standard was effective for the Company beginning July 1, 2008. The Company has not applied the fair value option to any items; therefore, the adoption of the standard did not have an impact on the consolidated financial statements.
 
On July 1, 2007, the Company adopted a new accounting standard that prescribes a consistent recognition threshold and measurement standard, as well as criteria for subsequently recognizing, derecognizing, classifying and measuring tax positions for financial statement purposes. The cumulative effect of adopting this standard was recorded as a $10 reduction to beginning retained earnings. The standard requires uncertain tax positions to be classified as non-current income tax liabilities unless expected to be paid within one year. Upon adoption of the standard, income tax liabilities of $53 were reclassified from current to non-current on the Company's balance sheet.


  
  
  
  
BUSINESSES ACQUIRED
BUSINESSES ACQUIRED
NOTE 2. BUSINESSES ACQUIRED
  
Caltech Industries, Inc.
  
In January 2010, the Company acquired the assets of Caltech Industries, Inc., a company that provides disinfectants for the health care industry, for an aggregate price of $24, with the objective of expanding the Company's capabilities in the areas of health and wellness. The final purchase price will be subject to certain tax adjustments that are expected to be finalized during fiscal year 2011. In connection with the purchase, the Company acquired Caltech Industries' workforce. The Company paid for the acquisition in cash.
  
Net assets acquired, at fair value, included inventory of $2 and other assets of $4, goodwill of $9, trademarks of $6, customer list of $2, product formulae of $2 and other liabilities of $1. The trademarks, customer list and product formulae will be amortized over a period of 315 and 10 years, respectively. Goodwill represents a substantial portion of the acquisition proceeds due to the high growth rate of the use of disinfecting products in the healthcare industry.
  
Operating results of the acquired business are included in the consolidated net earnings in the Cleaning reportable segment, from the acquisition date. Pro forma results of the Company, assuming the acquisition had occurred at the beginning of each period presented, would not be materially different from the results reported.
  
Burt's Bees Inc.
  
On November 30, 2007, the Company completed its acquisition of Burt's Bees Inc., a leading manufacturer and marketer of natural personal care products, for an aggregate price of $913, excluding $25 paid for tax benefits associated with the agreement. The Company funded the all-cash transaction through a combination of cash and short-term borrowings. During fiscal years 2009 and 2008, the Company received tax benefits associated with the acquisition of $8 and $17, respectively, through a combination of income tax refunds and reduced quarterly estimated tax payments. Under the terms of the agreement, the Company acquired 100 percent of Burt's Bees from its stockholders in a transaction that was structured as a merger. The Company also incurred $8 of transaction costs in connection with the acquisition of Burt's Bees. The operating results of Burt's Bees are reported in the Company's financial statements beginning December 1, 2007 in the Lifestyle reportable segment.
  
The following table provides unaudited pro forma results of operations of the Company for the fiscal year 2008, as if Burt's Bees had been acquired as of the beginning of that fiscal year. Results of operations for fiscal years 2010 and 2009, as reported, are included for comparison. Fiscal years 2010 and 2009, as reported, included full fiscal years of Burt's Bees results. The unaudited pro forma results include certain recurring purchase accounting adjustments such as depreciation and amortization expense on acquired tangible and intangible assets and assumed interest costs. However, unaudited pro forma results do not include certain transaction-related costs including the effect of a step-up of the value of acquired inventory, cost savings or other effects of the planned integration of Burt's Bees. Accordingly, such results of operations are not necessarily indicative of the results as if the acquisition had occurred at the beginning of the date indicated or that may result in the future.
  
2010 2009 2008
Years ended June 30         As reported         As reported         Pro forma
Net Sales $ 5,534   $ 5,450   $ 5,343
Net earnings     603   537 472
Diluted net earnings per common share $      4.24 $      3.79 $      3.32
  
 The assets and liabilities of Burt's Bees were recorded at their respective estimated fair values as of the date of the acquisition using generally accepted accounting principles then applicable to business combinations. The excess of the purchase price over the fair value of the net identifiable assets acquired has been allocated to goodwill. Goodwill represents a substantial portion of the acquisition proceeds because the Burt's Bees ® brand provides the Company with entry into the fast growing, higher margin natural personal care category.
  
The following table summarizes the estimated fair values of Burt's Bees' assets acquired and liabilities assumed and related deferred income taxes as of the acquisition date. The weighted-average estimated useful life of intangible assets subject to amortization is 16 years.

       Cash $ 33
       Inventory 45

A step-up in the value of inventory of $19 was recorded in the allocation of the purchase price based on valuation estimates. During fiscal year 2008, this step-up amount was charged to cost of products sold as the inventory was sold.
 
RESTRUCTURING AND ASSET IMPAIRMENT
RESTRUCTURING AND ASSET IMPAIRMENT
NOTE 3. RESTRUCTURING AND ASSET IMPAIRMENT
 
In fiscal year 2008, the Company began a restructuring plan that involves simplifying its supply chain and other restructuring activities (Supply Chain and Other restructuring plan), which was subsequently expanded to reduce certain staffing levels, resulting in additional costs, primarily severance, associated with this activity. The Company anticipates the Supply Chain and Other restructuring plan will be completed in fiscal year 2012. The Company may, from time to time, decide to pursue additional restructuring-related initiatives to drive cost savings and efficiencies.
 
The following table summarizes the restructuring costs, primarily severance, associated with the Company's Supply Chain and Other restructuring plan by affected reportable segment, with unallocated amounts set forth in Corporate, for fiscal years 2010, 2009 and 2008:
 
2010        2009        2008
Cleaning $ 2 $ 3 $ 3
Household 2   -   -
International -   2   2
Corporate   - 12 2
Total Company $      4 $      17 $      7
 
 
The Company incurred no asset impairment costs for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010. Asset impairment costs for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2009 were $3 in the Household segment. Asset impairment costs for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2008 were $3, $22 and $4 in the Cleaning, Household and International segments, respectively.
 
Restructuring and asset impairment costs were $4, $20 and $36 in fiscal years 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively.
 
The following table summarizes restructuring-related costs, primarily cost of products sold, associated with the Company's Supply Chain and Other restructuring plan by affected reportable segment, with unallocated amounts set forth in Corporate:
 
2010        2009        2008
Cleaning $ 6 $ 11 $ 9
Household   4 5   10
International - 1 3
Corporate 3     2 1
Total Company $       13 $       19 $       23
 
Total non-cash costs for fiscal years 2010, 2009 and 2008 were $4, $10 and $48, respectively.
 
The Company anticipates incurring approximately $13 to $19 of Supply Chain and Other restructuring and restructuring-related charges in fiscal year 2011, of which approximately $6 are expected to be non-cash. The Company anticipates approximately $2 to $4 of restructuring-related charges in selling and administrative expenses in Corporate and $4 to $6 of cost of products sold charges to be in the Cleaning segment and $7 to $9 in the Household segment, respectively. The total anticipated charges related to the Supply Chain and Other restructuring plan for fiscal year 2012 are estimated to be approximately $5 to $7.
 
The following table reconciles the accrual for the Supply Chain and Other restructuring charges discussed above:

Trademarks and Other intangible assets subject to amortization are net of accumulated amortization of $235 and $219 at June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively. Estimated amortization expense for these intangible assets is $16, $15, $14, $13 and $10 for fiscal year 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. The weighted-average amortization period for trademarks and other intangible assets subject to amortization is 20 years and 14 years, respectively.
 
During the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2010, the Company changed the date of its annual impairment test of goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets from January 1 to April 1. The change was made to align more closely the annual impairment test date with the Company's long-range planning and forecasting process. The change did not delay, accelerate nor avoid an impairment charge. The Company, therefore, performed its annual impairment test of goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets as of January 1, 2010, and again as of April 1, 2010, and no instances of impairment were identified.

Equity Investments
    
The Company holds various equity investments in a number of consumer products businesses, most of which operate outside the United States. The Company has no ongoing capital commitments, loan requirements, guarantees or any other types of arrangements under the terms of its agreements that would require any future cash contributions or disbursements arising out of an equity investment, except for the investment in low-income housing partnerships described in the following paragraph.
    
Investment in Low-Income Housing Partnerships
         
The Company owns, directly or indirectly, limited partnership interests of up to 99% in 42 low-income housing partnerships, which are accounted for on the equity basis. The purpose of the partnerships is to develop and operate low-income housing rental properties. The general partners, who typically hold 1% of the partnership interests, are third parties unrelated to the Company and its affiliates, and are responsible for controlling and managing the business and financial operations of the partnerships. The partnerships provide the Company with low-income housing tax credits. Tax benefits (detriments), net of equity in the losses of the low-income housing partnerships, were $2, $1, and $(3) in fiscal years 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively. The Company's estimated future capital requirement for the partnerships is less than $1 in fiscal year 2011 and thereafter. As a limited partner, the Company is not responsible for any of the liabilities and obligations of the partnerships nor do the partnerships or their creditors have any recourse to the Company other than for the capital requirements. Recovery of the Company's investments in the partnerships is accomplished through the utilization of low-income housing tax credits, the tax benefits of partnership losses and proceeds from the disposition of the properties. The risk of the low-income housing tax credits being unavailable to the Company is considered very low. For the combined group of low-income housing partnerships in which the Company invests, the aggregate underlying assets and liabilities were approximately $292 and $417, respectively, at June 30, 2010. The Company does not consolidate the investment in low-income housing partnerships.
  
Investment in Insurance Contracts
  
The Company invests in life insurance policies and records the cash surrender value of the contracts, net of any policy loans, at fair value. Any change in the cash surrender value is reflected in other expense (income), net.

DEBT
DEBT
NOTE 10. DEBT
   
In fiscal year 2010, $598 of debt became due and was paid. The Company funded the debt repayment with commercial paper and operating cash flows.
  
In November 2009, the Company issued $300 of long-term debt in senior notes. The notes carry an annual fixed interest rate of 3.55% payable semi-annually in May and November. The notes mature on November 1, 2015. Proceeds from the notes were used to repay commercial paper. The notes rank equally with all of the Company's existing and future senior indebtedness.
    
Notes and loans payable, which mature in less than one year, included the following at June 30:
  
        2010         2009
Commercial paper   $ 369   $ 419
Foreign borrowings 2 2
Total $      371 $      421
 
The weighted average interest rate on commercial paper was 0.43% and 0.59% at June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively. During the fiscal years ended June 30, 2010, 2009 and 2008, the weighted average interest rates on notes and loans payable was 0.62%, 2.85% and 4.45%, respectively. The carrying value of notes and loans payable at June 30, 2010 and 2009, approximated the fair value of such debt.
 
Long-term debt at June 30 included the following:
  
        2010         2009
Senior unsecured notes and debentures:
       4.20%, $575 due January 2010 $ - $ 575

Total 2,424   2,728
Less: Current maturities (300 ) (577 )
Long-term debt $      2,124   $      2,151
 
The weighted average interest rate on long-term debt was 5.19% and 5.14% at June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively. During the fiscal years ended June 30, 2010, 2009 and 2008, the weighted average interest rates on long-term debt, including the effect of interest rate swaps, was 5.16%, 5.15% and 5.16%, respectively. The estimated fair value of long-term debt, including current maturities, was $2,635 and $2,816 at June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively. The Company accounts for its long-term debt at face value, net of any unamortized discounts or premiums. The fair value of long-term debt was determined using secondary market prices quoted by corporate bond dealers.
 
Credit facilities at June 30 were as follows:
  
        2010         2009
Revolving credit line   $ 1,100   $ 1,100
Foreign credit lines   23 57
Other credit lines 12 3
Total $      1,135 $      1,160
 
  
At June 30, 2009, there were no borrowings under the $1,100 revolving credit agreement, and the Company believes that borrowings under the revolving credit facility are now available and will continue to be available for general corporate purposes and to support commercial paper issuances. The $1,100 revolving credit agreement expires in April 2013 and includes certain restrictive covenants.
  
The Company was in compliance with all restrictive covenants and limitations as of June 30, 2010 and 2009. In addition, the Company had $35 of foreign and other credit lines at June 30, 2010, of which $27 was available for borrowing.
  
Long-term debt maturities at June 30, 2010, are $300, $3, $850, Zero, $575 and $700 in fiscal years 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and thereafter, respectively.
FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS AND FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS AND FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
NOTE 11. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS AND FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
  
The Company is exposed to certain commodity and foreign currency risks relating to its ongoing business operations. The Company uses commodity futures and swap contracts to fix the price of a portion of its forecasted raw material requirements. Contract maturities, which are generally no longer than 18 months, are matched to the length of the raw material purchase contracts. The Company also enters into certain foreign currency related derivative contracts to manage a portion of the Company's foreign exchange risk associated with the purchase of inventory. These foreign currency contracts generally have durations no longer than twelve months.
  
The accounting for changes in the fair value (i.e., gains or losses) of a derivative instrument depends on whether it has been designated and qualifies as a hedge, and on the type of the hedging relationship. For those derivative instruments designated and qualifying as hedging instruments, the Company must designate the hedging instrument as a fair value hedge or a cash flow hedge. The Company designates its commodity forward and future contracts of forecasted purchases for raw materials and its foreign currency forward contracts of forecasted purchases of inventory as cash flow hedges. During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010, the Company had no hedging instruments designated as fair value hedges.
  
For derivative instruments designated and qualifying as a cash flow hedge, the effective portion of the gain or loss on the derivative is reported as a component of other comprehensive income (OCI) and reclassified into earnings in the same period or periods during which the hedged transaction affects earnings. The estimated amount of the existing net loss at the reporting date expected to be reclassified into earnings within the next twelve months is $0. Gains and losses on the derivative instruments representing either hedge ineffectiveness or hedge components excluded from the assessment of effectiveness are recognized in current earnings. During the fiscal year 2010, the hedge ineffectiveness was not material. The Company dedesignates these cash flow hedge relationships whenever it determines that the hedge relationships are no longer highly effective. The portion of gains or losses on the derivative instrument previously accumulated in other comprehensive income for dedesignated hedges remains in accumulated other comprehensive income until the forecasted transaction is recognized in earnings. Changes in the value of derivative instruments after dedesignation are recorded in other income (expense) and amounted to ($3) for the fiscal year 2010.
  
The Company's derivative financial instruments designated as hedging instruments are recorded at fair value in the condensed consolidated balance sheet as follows:

As of June 30, 2010, the net notional value of commodity derivatives was $91, of which $46 related to diesel fuel, $18 related to jet fuel, $25 related to soybean oil and $2 related to crude oil.
 
As of June 30, 2010, the Company had outstanding foreign currency forward contracts related to its subsidiaries in Canada and Australia of $12 and $6, respectively, used to hedge forecasted purchases of inventory.
 
Certain terms of the agreements governing the Company's over-the-counter derivative instruments require the Company or the counterparty to post collateral when the fair value of the derivative instruments exceeds contractually defined counterparty liability position limits. There was no collateral posted at June 30, 2010.
 
Certain terms of the agreements governing the over-the-counter derivative instruments contain provisions that require the credit ratings, as assigned by Standard and Poor's and Moody's to the Company and its counterparties, to remain at a level equal to or better than the minimum of an investment grade credit rating. As of June 30, 2010, the Company and each of its counterparties maintained investment grade ratings with both Standard and Poor's and Moody's.
 
U.S. GAAP prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value into the following hierarchy:
 
Level 1: Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2: Observable market-based inputs or unobservable inputs that are corroborated by market data.
Level 3: Unobservable inputs reflecting the reporting entity's own assumptions.
 
At June 30, 2010, the Company's financial assets and liabilities that were measured at fair value on a recurring basis during the year were level 2 foreign exchange contracts with a fair value of $1(included in other current assets), and commodity purchase contracts with a fair value of $3 (included in accrued liabilities).
 
Commodity purchase contracts are fair valued using market quotations obtained from commodity derivative dealers.
 
The foreign exchange contracts are fair valued using information quoted by foreign exchange dealers.
 
The carrying values of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and notes and loans payable approximate their fair values at June 30, 2010 and 2009, due to the short maturity and nature of those balances.

Venture Agreement
 
In January 2003, the Company entered into an agreement with The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) by which a venture was formed related to the Company's Glad® plastic bags, wraps and containers business. The Company maintains a net terminal obligation liability, which reflects the estimated value of the contractual requirement to repurchase P&G's interest at the termination of the agreement. As of June 30, 2010 and 2009, P&G had a 20% interest in the venture. The Company pays a royalty to P&G for its interest in the profits, losses and cash flows, as contractually defined, of the Glad® business and are included in cost of products sold.
 
The agreement has a 20-year term, with a 10-year renewal option and can be terminated under certain circumstances, including at P&G's option upon a change in control of the Company, or, at either party's option, upon the sale of the Glad® business by the Company. Upon termination of the agreement, the Company will purchase P&G's interest for cash at fair value as established by predetermined valuation procedures. Following termination, the Glad® business will retain the exclusive core intellectual property licenses contributed by P&G on a royalty free basis for the licensed products marketed.
OTHER CONTINGENCIES
OTHER CONTINGENCIES
NOTE 13. OTHER CONTINGENCIES
 
The Company is involved in certain environmental matters, including Superfund and other response actions at various locations. The Company recorded a liability of $16 and $19 at June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively, for its share of the related aggregate future remediation cost. One matter in Dickinson County, Michigan, for which the Company is jointly and severally liable, accounts for a substantial majority of the recorded liability at both June 30, 2010 and 2009. The Company is subject to a cost-sharing arrangement with Ford Motor Co. (Ford) for this matter, under which the Company has agreed to be liable for 24.3% of the aggregate remediation and associated costs, other than legal fees, as the Company and Ford are each responsible for their own such fees. In October 2004, the Company and Ford agreed to a consent judgment with the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, which sets forth certain remediation goals and monitoring activities. Based on the current status of this matter, and with the assistance of environmental consultants, the Company maintains an undiscounted liability representing its best estimate of its share of costs associated with the capital expenditures, maintenance and other costs to be incurred over an estimated 30-year remediation period. The most significant components of the liability relate to the estimated costs associated with the remediation of groundwater contamination and excess levels of subterranean methane deposits. The Company made payments of less than $1 in fiscal years 2010 and 2009, respectively, towards remediation efforts. Currently, the Company cannot accurately predict the timing of the payments that will likely be made under this estimated obligation. In addition, the Company's estimated loss exposure is sensitive to a variety of uncertain factors, including the efficacy of remediation efforts, changes in remediation requirements and the timing, varying costs and alternative clean-up technologies that may become available in the future. Although it is possible that the Company's exposure may exceed the amount recorded, any amount of such additional exposures, or range of exposures, is not estimable at this time.
 
The Company is subject to various other lawsuits and claims relating to issues such as contract disputes, product liability, patents and trademarks, advertising, employee and other matters. Although the results of claims and litigation cannot be predicted with certainty, it is the opinion of management that the ultimate disposition of these matters, to the extent not previously provided for, will not have a material adverse effect, individually or in the aggregate, on the Company's consolidated financial statements taken as a whole.

The Company has two share repurchase programs: an open-market program, which had a total authorization of $750 as of June 30, 2010, and a program to offset the impact of share dilution related to share-based awards (Evergreen Program), which has no authorization limit. The current open-market program was approved by the Company's Board of Directors in May 2008.
 
Share repurchases under the Evergreen Program were $150 (2.4 million shares) in fiscal year 2010. No shares were repurchased under the open-market program or Evergreen Program in fiscal year 2009. Share repurchases under the Evergreen Program were $118 (2.1 million shares) in fiscal year 2008. In August 2007, the Company entered into an Accelerated Share Repurchase (ASR) agreement with two investment banks in which the Company received 10.9 million shares in August 2007 and 1.1 million shares in January 2008. The average per share amount paid for all shares purchased under the ASR agreement was $62.08 for an aggregate price of $750.
 
During fiscal years 2010, 2009 and 2008, the Company declared dividends per share of $2.05, $1.88 and $1.66, respectively. During fiscal years 2010, 2009, and 2008, the Company paid dividends per share of $2.00, $1.84 and $1.60, respectively.
 
Accumulated other comprehensive net losses at June 30, 2010, 2009 and 2008, included the following net-of-tax (losses) gains:

EARNINGS PER SHARE
EARNINGS PER SHARE
NOTE 15. EARNINGS PER SHARE
 
The Company computes EPS using the two-class method (See Note 1), which is an earnings allocation formula that determines EPS for common stock and participating securities.
 
EPS for common stock is computed by dividing net earnings applicable to common stock by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding each period on an unrounded basis. Net earnings applicable to common stock includes dividends paid to common shareholders during the period plus a proportionate share of undistributed net earnings which is based on the weighted average number of shares of common stock and participating securities outstanding during the period.
 
Diluted EPS for common stock reflects the earnings dilution that could occur from common shares that may be issued through stock options, restricted stock awards, performance units and restricted stock units that are not participating securities. Excluded from this calculation are amounts allocated to participating securities.
 
The following are reconciliations of net earnings to net earnings applicable to common stock, and the number of common shares outstanding (in thousands) used to calculate basic EPS to those used to calculate diluted EPS for fiscal years ended June 30:
 
      2010       2009       2008
Net earnings $      603 $      537 $      461
Less: Earnings allocated to participating securities 3 5 5
Net earnings applicable to common stock $ 600 $ 532 $ 456

Diluted   141,534   140,169   141,197
       
The Company did not include the following options to purchase shares of the Company's common stock in the calculations of diluted EPS because their inclusion would be anti-dilutive for the fiscal years ended June 30:

Stock options        3,978        5,090        2,719
SHARE-BASED COMPENSATION PLANS
SHARE-BASED COMPENSATION PLANS
NOTE 16. SHARE-BASED COMPENSATION PLANS
 
In November 2005, the Company's stockholders approved the 2005 Stock Incentive Plan (2005 Plan). The 2005 Plan permits the Company to grant various nonqualified, share-based compensation awards, including stock options, restricted stock, performance units, deferred stock units, restricted stock units, stock appreciation rights, and other stock-based awards. The Company is authorized to grant up to seven million common shares under the 2005 Plan, and, at June 30, 2010, approximately six million common shares were available for grant under the plan.

Compensation cost and related income tax benefit recognized in the Company's fiscal years 2010, 2009 and 2008 consolidated financial statements for share-based compensation plans were classified as indicated in the table below.
 
      2010       2009       2008
Cost of products sold $       8 $       8 $       7
Selling and administrative expenses 46 45 36
Research and development costs 6 5 4
Total compensation cost $ 60 $ 58 $ 47
Related income tax benefit $ 22 $ 22 $ 18
 
Cash received during fiscal year 2010, 2009 and 2008 from stock options exercised under all share-based payment arrangements was $69, $35 and $31, respectively. The Company issues shares for share-based compensation plans from treasury stock. The Company may repurchase shares under its Evergreen Program to offset the estimated impact of share dilution related to share-based awards (See Note 14).
 
Details regarding the valuation and accounting for stock options, restricted stock awards, performance units and deferred stock units for non-employee directors follow.
 
Stock Options
 
The fair value of each stock option award granted during fiscal years 2010, 2009 and 2008 was estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes valuation model and assumptions noted in the following table:

The expected life of the stock options is based on observed historical exercise patterns. Groups of employees having similar historical exercise behavior are considered separately for valuation purposes. The Company estimates stock option forfeitures based on historical data for each separate employee grouping, and adjusts the rate to expected forfeitures periodically. The adjustment of the forfeiture rate will result in a cumulative catch-up adjustment in the period the forfeiture estimate is changed. The expected volatility is based on implied volatility from publicly traded options on the Company's stock at the date of grant, historical implied volatility of the Company's publicly traded options and other factors. The risk-free interest rate is based on the implied yield on a U.S. Treasury zero-coupon issue with a remaining term equal to the expected term of the option. The dividend yield is based on the projected annual dividend payment per share, divided by the stock price at the date of grant.
 
Details of the Company's stock option plan at June 30 are summarized below:

Options vested and exercisable at June 30, 2010 6,087 52 4years 61

The weighted-average fair value per share of each option granted during fiscal years 2010, 2009, and 2008, estimated at the grant date using the Black-Scholes option pricing model, was $8.34, $11.07 and $11.86, respectively. The total intrinsic value of options exercised in fiscal years 2010, 2009 and 2008 was $36, $16 and $16, respectively.
Stock option awards outstanding as of June 30, 2010, have been granted at prices that are either equal to or above the market value of the stock on the date of grant. Stock options outstanding as of June 30, 2010, generally vest over four years and expire no later than ten years after the grant date. The Company generally recognizes compensation expense ratably over the vesting period. At June 30, 2010, there was $19 of total unrecognized compensation cost related to nonvested options, which is expected to be recognized over a remaining weighted-average vesting period of two years, subject to forfeitures.
 
Restricted Stock Awards
 
The fair value of restricted stock awards is estimated on the date of grant based on the market price of the stock and is amortized to compensation expense on a straight-line basis over the related vesting periods, which are generally three to four years. The total number of restricted stock awards expected to vest is adjusted by estimated forfeiture rates. Restricted stock grants prior to July 1, 2009, receive dividend distributions during their vesting period. Restricted stock grants after July 1, 2009, receive dividends earned during the vesting period upon vesting.
 
At June 30, 2010, there was $2 of total unrecognized compensation cost related to nonvested restricted stock awards, which is expected to be recognized over a remaining weighted-average vesting period of two years. The total fair value of the shares that vested in fiscal years 2010, 2009 and 2008 was $5, $8 and $10, respectively. The weighted-average grant-date fair value of awards granted was $58.91, $63.30 and $60.69 per share for fiscal years 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively.

Performance Units
 
The Company's performance unit grants provide for the issuance of common stock to certain managerial staff and executive management if the Company achieves certain performance targets. The performance unit grants vest after three years. Performance unit grants prior to July 1, 2009, receive dividend distributions during their vesting periods. Performance unit grants after July 1, 2009, receive dividends earned during the vesting period upon vesting. The fair value of each grant issued is estimated on the date of grant based on the current market price of the stock. The total amount of compensation expense recognized reflects estimated forfeiture rates, and the initial assumption that performance goals will be achieved. Compensation expense is adjusted as necessary on a quarterly basis based on management's assessment of the probability that performance goals will be achieved. If such goals are not met or it is determined that achievement of performance goals is not probable, any previously recognized compensation expense is reversed to reflect the expected payout level. If it is determined that the performance goals will be exceeded, additional compensation expense is recognized.
 
The number of shares issued will be dependent upon vesting and the achievement of specified performance targets. At June 30, 2010, there was $31 in unrecognized compensation cost related to nonvested performance unit grants that is expected to be recognized over a remaining weighted-average performance period of two years. The weighted-average grant-date fair value of awards granted was $57.28, $63.95 and $61.16 per share for fiscal years 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively.
 
A summary of the status of the Company's performance unit awards at June 30 is presented below:
 
Weighted-Average
Grant Date

Performance unit awards at June 30, 2010 1,551 59
Perfomance units vested and deferred at June 30, 2010 252 53
 
The nonvested performance units outstanding at June 30, 2010 and 2009, were 1,298,382 and 1,252,134, respectively, and the weighted average grant date fair value was $60.68 and $62.28 per share, respectively. Total shares vested during fiscal year 2010 were 533,581, which had a weighted average grant date fair value per share of $61.51. The total fair value of shares vested was $33, $26 and $4 during fiscal years 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively. Upon vesting, the recipients of the grants receive the distribution as shares or, if previously elected by those who have the option to, as deferred stock. During fiscal years 2010 and 2009, $29 and $22, respectively, of the vested awards were paid by the issuance of shares. During both fiscal years 2010 and 2009, $4 of the vested awards were deferred. Deferred shares receive dividend distributions during their deferral period.
 
Deferred Stock Units for Nonemployee Directors
 
Nonemployee directors receive annual grants of deferred stock units under the Company's director compensation program and can elect to receive all or a portion of their annual retainers and fees in the form of deferred stock units. The deferred stock units receive dividend distributions, which are reinvested as deferred stock units, and are recognized at their fair value on the date of grant. Each deferred stock unit represents the right to receive one share of the Company's common stock following the termination of a director's service.
 
During fiscal year 2010, the Company granted 23,528 deferred stock units, reinvested dividends of 5,290 units and distributed 1,990 shares, which had a weighted-average fair value on grant date of $61.11, $61.89 and $52.06 per share, respectively. As of June 30, 2010, 179,826 units were outstanding, which had a weighted-average fair value on grant date of $56.66 per share.

Space not occupied by the Company in its headquarters building is rented to other tenants under operating leases expiring through 2015. Future minimum rentals to be received under these leases total $5 and do not exceed $2 in any one year.
 
The Company is also party to certain purchase obligations, which are defined as purchase agreements that are enforceable and legally-binding and that specify all significant terms, including quantity, price and the approximate timing of the transaction. Examples of the Company's purchase obligations include contracts to purchase raw materials, commitments to contract manufacturers, commitments for information technology and related services, advertising contracts, utility agreements, capital expenditure agreements, software acquisition and license commitments, and service contracts. At June 30, 2010, the Company's purchase obligations, including the services related to the Information Technology Services (ITS) Agreement, totaled $361, $145, $58, $19, $3, and $2 for fiscal years 2011 through 2015, and thereafter, respectively. Estimates for the ITS Agreement are based on an annual service fee that is adjusted periodically based upon updates to services and equipment provided. Included in the ITS Agreement are certain acceleration payment clauses if the Company terminates the contract without cause.

Applicable U.S. income taxes and foreign withholding taxes have not been provided on approximately $102 of undistributed earnings of certain foreign subsidiaries at June 30, 2010, because these earnings are considered indefinitely reinvested. The net federal income tax liability that would arise if these earnings were not indefinitely reinvested is approximately $26. Applicable U.S. income and foreign withholding taxes are provided on these earnings in the periods in which they are no longer considered indefinitely reinvested.
 
With respect to the Company's stock option plans, realized tax benefits in excess of tax benefits recognized in net earnings are recorded as increases to additional paid-in capital. Excess tax benefits of approximately $10, $6, and $9, were realized and recorded to additional paid-in capital for the fiscal years 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively.

Noncurrent deferred tax assets 25 28
Noncurrent deferred tax liabilities (24 )   (23 )
Net deferred tax assets $ 74 $ 79
 
The Company periodically reviews its deferred tax assets for recoverability. A valuation allowance is established when the Company believes that it is more likely than not that some portion of its deferred tax assets will not be realized. Valuation allowances have been provided to reduce deferred tax assets to amounts considered recoverable. Details of the valuation allowance at June 30 were as follows:
 
      2010       2009
Valuation allowance at beginning of year $      (6 ) $      (7 )
Net (decrease) increase in realizability of foreign deferred tax assets (5 ) 1
Increase in foreign net operating loss carryforward and other (1 ) -
Valuation allowance at end of year   $ (12 )   $ (6 )
 
At June 30, 2010, the Company had no federal foreign tax credit carryforwards. Tax benefits from foreign net operating loss carryforwards of $6 have expiration dates between fiscal years 2011 and 2029. Tax benefits from foreign net operating loss carryforwards of $3 may be carried forward indefinitely.
 
The Company files income tax returns in the U.S. federal and various state, local and foreign jurisdictions. In the second quarter of fiscal year 2009, the Company settled the 2005 fiscal year with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and paid $2 in federal taxes and interest. In the first quarter of fiscal year 2010, the Company paid federal tax and interest of $8 related to the 2004 and 2006 fiscal tax years. No tax benefits had previously been recognized for the issues related to the 2004, 2005 and 2006 tax settlements. Certain issues relating to fiscal years 2003, 2004 and 2006 are under review by the IRS Appeals Division. Various income tax returns in state and foreign jurisdictions are currently in the process of examination.
 
The Company recognizes interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions as a component of income tax expense. As of June 30, 2010 and June 30, 2009, the total balance of accrued interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions was $22 and $17, respectively. For fiscal year 2010, income tax expense includes $5 of interest and penalties.
 
Following is a reconciliation of the beginning and ending amounts of the Company's gross unrecognized tax benefits:
 
Unrecognized tax benefits - July 1, 2009       $       98
Gross increases - tax positions in prior periods 10
Gross decreases - tax positions in prior periods (15 )
Gross increases - current period tax positions   5
Settlements (14 )
Unrecognized tax benefits - June 30, 2010 $ 84
 
Included in the balance of unrecognized tax benefits at June 30, 2010 and June 30, 2009, respectively, are potential benefits of $57 and $64, respectively, that if recognized, would affect the effective tax rate on earnings.
 
In the twelve months succeeding June 30, 2010, audit resolutions could potentially reduce total unrecognized tax benefits by up to $29, primarily as a result of cash payments. Audit outcomes and the timing of audit settlements are subject to significant uncertainty. 
EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PLANS
EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PLANS
NOTE 20. EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PLANS
 
Retirement Income Plans
 
The Company has qualified and nonqualified defined benefit plans that cover substantially all domestic employees and certain international employees. Benefits are based on either employee years of service and compensation or a stated dollar amount per years of service. The Company is the sole contributor to the plans in amounts deemed necessary to provide benefits and to the extent deductible for federal income tax purposes. Assets of the plans consist primarily of investments in cash equivalents, mutual funds and common collective trusts.
 
The Company made contributions of $43, $30, and $0 to its domestic qualified retirement income plan in fiscal years 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively. Contributions made to the domestic non-qualified retirement income plans were $8, $7 and $13 in fiscal years 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively. The Company has also contributed $2, $1, and $1 to its foreign retirement income plans for fiscal years 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively. The Company's funding policy is to contribute amounts sufficient to meet minimum funding requirements as set forth in employee benefit tax laws plus additional amounts as the Company may determine to be appropriate. At June 30, 2010, based on current pension funding rules, the Company is not required to make any contributions in fiscal year 2011.
 
Retirement Health Care
 
The Company provides certain health care benefits for employees who meet age, participation and length of service requirements at retirement. The plans pay stated percentages of covered expenses after annual deductibles have been met. Benefits paid take into consideration payments by Medicare for the domestic plan. The plans are funded as claims are paid, and the Company has the right to modify or terminate certain of these plans.
 
The assumed domestic health care cost trend rate used in measuring the accumulated post-retirement benefit obligation (APBO) was 8.4% for medical and 9.8% for prescription drugs for fiscal year 2010. These rates have been assumed to gradually decrease each year until an assumed ultimate trend of 4.5% is reached in 2028. The healthcare cost trend rate assumption has an effect on the amounts reported. The effect of a 100 basis point increase or decrease in the assumed healthcare cost trend rate on the total service and interest cost components, and the postretirement benefit obligation was less than $1, respectively, for all three years ended June 30, 2010, 2009 and 2008.

Weighted-average assumptions used to estimate the actuarial present value of benefit obligations at June 30 are as follows:
 
Retirement Income   Retirement Health Care
      2010       2009       2010       2009
Discount rate   5.34%   6.81%   5.36%   6.80%
Rate of compensation increase 3.99%   4.22%   n/a n/a

Weighted-average assumptions used to estimate the net periodic pension and other postretirement benefit costs for the fiscal years ended June 30 are as follows:
 
Retirement Income
      2010       2009       2008
Discount rate 6.81%   6.75%   6.22%
Rate of compensation increase 4.22%   4.19%   4.18%

Expected benefit payments are based on the same assumptions used to measure the benefit obligations and include estimated future employee service.
 
The target allocations and weighted average asset allocations of the investment portfolio for the Company's domestic retirement income plans at June 30 are:
 
% of Plan Assets
% Target at June 30
      Allocation       2010       2009
Asset Category
U.S. equity 50 % 48 % 50 %
International equity 20 19 21
Fixed income 25 27 24
Other 5 6 5
Total      100 %      100 %      100 %
 
 
 
The expected long-term rate of return assumption is based on an analysis of historical experience of the portfolio and the summation of prospective returns for each asset class in proportion to the fund's current asset allocation.
 
The target asset allocation was determined based on the risk tolerance characteristics established for the plans and, at times, may be adjusted to achieve the plans' overall investment objective and to minimize any concentration of investment risk. The Company's objective is to invest plan assets in a manner that will generate resources to pay current and projected plan obligations over the life of the domestic qualified retirement income plan.
 
The following table sets forth by level, within the fair value hierarchy, the retirement income plans' assets carried at fair value as of June 30, 2010:
 
      Level 1       Level 2       Total
Mutual funds $ 196 $ - $ 196
Cash equivalents   1 -   1
